I just saw the preview of Fox Box just for the Kirby preview and I'm excited. How many are you are looking forward to the Kirby cartoon?

I hardly got to see any of the Mario and Sonic cartoons, and I didn't get to see Earthworm Jim or Donkey Kong Country. I really have to tape Kirby so I can have fun all over again.

Kirby's cool but I don't see how you can make a TV show based sucking up enemies and copying abilities.

Hey, Joe...remember that they did make a cartoon about Pac-Man. Going around and eating things = character development, I guess.

Well, they did try to give Pac-Man some character development by giving him a wife and kid and an evil scientist that wanted to destroy him for some reason. And in the second season they threw in a super-hero and a stupid Fonz-ripoff cousin... you're right, cartoons based on video games suck.

*recalls the original Donkey Kong cartoon with a shudder...*

Hey, not all videogame cartoons are crap. Remember Captain N?

*crickets chirp*

...oh shut up! Ok, so maybe it did suck. But it had King Hippo from Mike Tyson's Punch-Out, and he was the best.

I only ever liked sonic but a pink thing running around taking the form of others really will not interest many people.

Yeah, I too noticed that Futurama was missing. At first I thought I was watching some low-budget anime, because I flipped channels in the middle of the show.

I don't know much about the new video game TV shows, but the Mario shows of the 80's were cool. I even found some episodes online with Kazaa!

The old live-action Mario shows with Capt. Lou Albano playing Mario? Man, I remember watching those! Those *certaintly* did not age well.

I have the Mario cartoons on DVD, but without the live action segments. The only live action segment was during "Do the Mario"

When I was 6 and we first owned a Nintendo I was so afraid of Mario games because I was always afraid of Mario and Luigi falling down a hole. That's why I like Mario, even though I'm now seventeen and about to go to 12th grade Wednesday morning and I still feel like a little kid because I'm mentally handicapped.

No, I'm positive that there were live-action skits used as bumpers between the cartoons. I'll be my life on this one. Former wrestling manager Capt. Lou Albano played Mario, some nameless shmo played Luigi (p.s., how sad is it that you're less remembered than Capt. Lou?), and there were guest stars up the wazoo. If I remember correctly, there should be a review of the show somewhere in the x-entertainment.com archives.

Hey Juliet. I'll bet she didn't freak out when she saw the toy bunny with the red spraypaint on it. You getting my point?

If she likes video games a lot that's fine. It's certainly not your place to tell her to grow up when she's not starting any trouble with you.

Have a nice day.

the offtopic forum, in the picture thread.  there's a couple pictures of a stuffed bunny with fake red paint around its mouth so it looks like it's been eating animals.

Evan, of course we all remember the live-action Mario segments. But the crappy Mario DVD is crappy and doesn't have them. It only has the cartoons, and I guess the theme song.

PS, I also don't remember the name of the guy who played Luigi. But I remember him having a small part on an episode of Small Wonder. It was awesome.

You think those were bad, remember when they got replaced with two annoying surfer dudes?

No way. His ability to turn into an invulnerable rock was what made him so great against the hand. Lets you turn invincible in midair!

Man, The Super Mario Brothers Movie could, indeed, be the strangest movie adaptation I've ever seen of anything. Mind you, I have seen what became of Starship Troopers. I kind of liked it, though, in a wierd, abstract type of way.

To answer your question, Juliet, yes I have. I read in a Nintendo Power magazine and someone said that Hollywood should not make movies about video games unless they have played them. Other than that, the movie was funny. I like the part where the goombas dance. I even imitate that dance when I'm in an elevator or something. John Leguizamo rocked as Luigi (even though he lacked a mustache).
Not to mention that my dad got Resident Evil on DVD today.

Well, I'm probably *one* of the only people here who is looking forward to the cartoon. Mainly cause I'm a fan of the SNES games..
